Chipperfield Desk Lamp W102 by David Chipperfield Wastberg
The Chipperfield Desk lamp W102 is designed by David Chipperfield for Wastberg. It is a minimalist archetypal desk lamp. His intention was to have a simple form with a clear distinction between the base, the arm and the head of the lamp to create it. The lamp has no visible joints and is finished in matt brass. The Chipperfield Desk lamp is rotatable on the foot and the head is also rotatable with such minimum movements, you can easily provide the light to the desired spot. The height of the lamp is 43 cm and he is 34 cm long. The solid brass knob is the control and also the dimmer.
A LED light puts 90 percent of the energy into light and only 10 percent into heat. A conventional light bulb does exactly the opposite. A Led bulb consumes less power to produce the same light output. This is a considerable reduction in use of electricity and this is good for the environment. And LED bulbs have a longer service life than other light sources. So it’s cheaper and better for the environment to use Led light sources instead of conventional light bulbs. The light source of the Chipperfield Desk Lamp W102 is a 4 Watt LED light source corresponding to the light output of a 25 Watt conventional light bulb. The color of the light is 2700 K, what we experience as warm light. The LED Light source is included with the lamp.
